Educational Programming, Assessment and Consultation (EPAC)

The Educational Programming, Assessment and Consultation (EPAC) services are located within the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services’ (DFCS) Well-Being Services Section - Community Programs Unit. In an effort to support the Division’s broader goal of being a resource to families by promoting self-sufficiency and independence, EPAC is an academic support program that focuses on ensuring the educational stability of foster youth in Georgia.

Through a youth-centered approach, EPAC works collaboratively with other Division, state and county offices to ensure the educational well-being of children and youth in foster care are being met and that appropriate goal setting is in place for older youth that supports their educational stability. Within EPAC, various services and resources are provided including diagnostic educational assessments, tutorial services, connection to community-based educational support, and the coordinated procurement of educational services.
